Stand back Apple, iRiver has been at it again with another iPod assassin ready to be unleashed.This time it's the X20 we saw at CES. It's a tiny shiny PMP with up to a Nano matching 8GB of flash memory, but a Nano bashing 2.2in screen, ripe for movies and photos.The little fingerprint magnet also boasts an FM radio and microSD expansion slot.And, should you, like us, be in the habit of jetting off to Australia on a whim, you'll be glad to know it manages a stonking 22 hours of MP3 playback from a single charge.Yep, we really like the look of this marathon player but we'll have to a while longer for a UK launch, it's only just been announced in Japan. Still, with a battery life like that, it’ll probably still be playing by the time it lands.
